“Ear Bleeding Country: The Best Of” CHERRY RED
October 26. First issued in 2002, Ear Bleeding Country is the only career-spanning compilation of Dinosaur Jr. This is the first time this album has been made available on vinyl! (Also available as an expanded 2CD set.) Several tracks are drawn from the band’s early career in the 1980s, when they recorded for independent labels like Homestead and SST. Among them are the classic “Freak Scene” and their cover of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven”. Most of the compilation samples the best of Dinosaur Jr.’s output after signing with Warner Bros in 1990, including “The Wagon”, “Whatever’s Cool With Me”, “Out There”, and “Feel The Pain”.
